If you plan to race your truggy, get a .21 engine. That's enough power for a truggy. .28 engines are too much powerful and thirsty for a track.

Now, for the which .21 is the best... There are a bunch of .21 engine in the 200-250$ range that can do the job. If this is your first nitro, don't spend too much on your first engine.

In your initial post, you talked about the B5, this is a good and cheap engine.

Someone mentioned the P5XLT, that a really good choice.

I recently got a RB K10 engine, that's another really good engine for the price.

I'm Probley going to go with the novi. Because that's what I was going to put in my xxl was a novarossi.28 7tt because they seem like a really good motor for 300.

Thanks to all you guy who have helped. I really do appreciate the help and comments. I'm glad to know a .21 will work.

The last question is will I be able to keep up with with my buddies ofna x1 with a axial .28rr??
